Re: United dairy farmers Dec Auction


If my milk price starts with a 1 next spring I won't be worrying about the price next autumn.

It all depends on the powder market doesn't it? If it keeps falling we could be starting with a 1 before the spring. If the GBP would fall against the USD it might help. I'm sure there are plenty of pennies wasted on the processor side though.

The problem is, it takes something drastic to happen for us to get a decent milk price, like the droughts in Austrailia and NZ.

We can't depend on that for our bread and butter surely? That should be the occasional icing on the cake, to make up for our wet years.

You can say that Mark, because you know you are safe enough. GB price isn't as volatile.

My list of culls for the coming year looks very much like 'would it sell in a dispersal sale?' Because if the milk price falls and costs keep rising, I'm off.

... for milk to be supplied nov,dec,jan.

So, for the doubting Thomas', our milk price is likely to start with a one, even before the spring. I really hope for all our sakes that the english price stays up, but right now its bucking the europewide/worldwide trend of falling values. A seasoned powder trader was heard to say that powder has never been so hard to shift. With no export refunds/intervention, there is no market stability, and the buyers are just buying hand to mouth

Apparently you yanks need to stop opening up the tap so wide when the milk price starts to rise.

Re: United dairy farmers Dec Auction


Yeah, let me know too Sperrin and I'll happily tell Dad to jump off the United ship before it sinks completely!!

I was wondering when the AGM was coming up, is it at Loughry again? Gonna be a 'heated' night for Mr Dobbin and Mr Hamilton.

Dad was talking last night about selling the cows before their price drops too far, I said we'd wait to see what they're making at Clogher on Saturday, I'd be doubtful of too many going for the £1500+ they have been going for!!
